There is this boy I know, his name is Ladejo, he is 7 years old and he loves digging up dirt, removing stones, and old snail shells from the earth while asking lots of questions about what he has found.
His mum is always complaining, saying that he wastes a lot of time playing outside, and does not spend enough time studying.
Now there is this other 8 year old girl, Sola, she is always in the backyard shed, pulling a toy or old gadget to pieces and putting it all back again.
Her dad’s take on it is this: she needs to put her mind more into studying and not playing with toys.
